How long does mnesia take to warm up?

What about (from the mnesia docs):

-----------------------
mnesia:wait_for_tables(TabList,Timeout) -> ok | {timeout, BadTabList} | {error, Reason}

Some applications need to wait for certain tables to be accessible in order to do useful work. mnesia:wait_for_tables/2 hangs until all tables in the TabList are accessible, or until timeout is reached.
